ODA COUNCIL HIGHLIGHT

THROUGH THE
LOUPES

Scott Hansen, DMD
I was excited to learn that as secretary-treasurer of ODA,
I was automatically on DOPAC. I love staying current on
political issues, especially as they relate to our profession.
It is also nice to sit on a committee that has to listen to
my opinion, even if they think I am nuts. The work DOPAC
does is important, not only to the dentists in Oregon,
but also to the patients we serve. Since all ODA dentists
contribute to the DOPAC fund, we work hard to see that
those funds are spent wisely. It is a big responsibility
that we take seriously and hope to always represent our
member dentists, and their patients, as they deserve.

Jeff Timm, DMD
I was initially asked to be on the DOPAC committee by
Weston Heringer, Jr. After serving with the Central Oregon
Dental Society, it was an opportunity to serve at the
state level. I have learned so much about the legislative
process and how important it is for the profession to have
a strong voice in Salem. I am very proud of our work as
a committee and thankful for the help and guidance we
receive from the ODA and our lobbyist, George Okulitch.

Tom Pollard, DMD, Chair
I joined DOPAC because I was asked by Multnomah
Dental Society. I had worked with the ODA's Government
Affairs Council for many years and have developed
interest in the process. I appreciate the opportunity to be
involved, and I enjoy the people I work with and learning
how our elections are influenced by peoples' involvement
and donations.

Weston Heringer, Jr., DMD
I joined DOPAC because dentists as health care providers
and small business people need to be at the table when
legislators are making rules and acting on public policies
that affect our patients and profession. We are the experts
on oral health, and we need to be present and heard.

DOPAC tries to engage members from across the state, and participates in events for Oregon leaders from both
political parties. If you are interested in attending a future event on behalf of DOPAC and the ODA, please reach out to
